Last call for exhibitors and sponsors - APV/IPEC Europe conference

Aside from a fantastic way to keep abreast of key developments in the areas of excipient regulation and technology, the 6th Annual APV/IPEC Europe conference is a great opportunity to present your company, products and services to a truly focused target market.

As an exhibitor you will be invited to attend the conference sessions and to network at the social programme in the evening at the APV/IPEC Europe Excipient Conference 2017, which will take place in Berlin on 19-20 September. The catering station will be integrated in the exhibition, ensuring that participants are around the table top stands as much as possible, and there are also attractive sponsoring packages to choose from. For more details, contact Antonia Herbert (ah@apv-mainz.de).

As a reminder, the conference will focus on 'hot topics' in the area of excipient regulation and technology. In contrast to the market for finished drugs and active pharmaceutical ingredients the market for excipients is extremely difficult to quantify. For the first time one lecture of the conference will provide an overview of the global excipients market with the focus on oral solid dosage forms.

As part of the programme, three parallel workshops will be offered to provide practical, hands-on insights and discussion on pressing regulatory topics, with a view to developing joint solutions. These workshops will focus on data integrity in excipient manufacture and supply chain, quality agreements and stability testing of excipients.

Beyond that the regulatory session will highlight the multifaceted challenges to ensure excipient compliance such as multi-compendial compliance of excipients, excipient packaging systems and excipient supply chains. How to verify that excipient suppliers work in compliance with the regulations and the transport of excipients will be reviewed as well.

The technical and scientific part of the conference will deal with important excipient functionalities such as diluents for direct compression, the role of excipients in inhalation drugs and transdermal drug delivery. Further topics include the requirements of excipients for continuous manufacturing processes and the impact that excipient grades have on the bioequivalence of generic drugs.
